BENEFITING: MYTEAM TRIUMPH
Ainsley’s Angels is thrilled to help ensure Captain Aaron soon 'Roll With The Wind' in his very own Freedom Push Chair. Last year, Team Katelyn proudly achieved mission accomplishment (see the video news STORY and the Mission PROFILE)! Inspired by Team Katelyn's success and many smiles, TEAM AARON was born and a new mission established!

We have once again teamed up with Angel Brianna, and newcomer Angels Tess and Jenna, to get the chair presented to Aaron at an upcoming road race! With your generosity, we are certain this can happen before our Eastern Carolina two year anniversary celebration on 20 September!
A few more details: As you can see in the photo to the left, Capt Aaron is one cool cat and was obviously impressed with the good looks of the young Ainsley’s Angels that recently pushed him in the Wounded Warrior 5k in Jacksonville, NC. After some brief chats with Aaron's mother, a San Diego native, we aim to help her achieve her goal of having the ability to take all three of her kids to the beach and other "off-road" activities. She also aims to ensure Aaron can participate with Ainsley's Angels as much as possible. Perhaps most exciting, Aaron is having metal rods replaced along his spine which may provide him the ability to walk on his own someday!!! And just maybe, he'll be able to get out of the race chair and cross the finish line on his own. Until then, the Angels in the photo, Tess, Brianna and Jenna (left to right) are all dedicated to the "Ainsley's Angels experience" and mission to be a part of improving the lives of Aaron and his family by actively fundraising for Captain Aaron to have his very own Freedom Push Chair.
As the father of two very special girls that race together, Ainsley and Briley, I know that the positive energy surrounding the start line, the togetherness of every member preparing to "roll with the wind", the fearlessness of the athletes, the normalcy of the family, and the love we all have for each other is a therapy like no other. I also know… YES YOU CAN, donate 10, 20 or 50 dollars right now to ensure the thrill of rolling with the wind and crossing a road race finish line!
